Saturday Wedding...

Matt and I went to a wedding this afternoon. One of my friends from work, her daughter was getting married. Betty (my friend) and her husband, Joe have adopted Matt and I while we are here in St. Louis- we call them our St. Louis parents. Their daughter's wedding was beautiful! We had a good time and it was a nice afternoon out together.

Here we are together inside & outside of the church. These are some of our first pictures together with me pregnant!

To Shave or Not to Shave...

Well, Matt had decided to grow a beard. He started growing this beard about 3 weeks ago. It is time for my loyal blog readers to vote whether or not he keeps it (I do have his permission to do this). Please comment and let me know if the beard should stay or if the beard should go...I will keep my opinion until the end (even though some of you already know my thoughts on it). Start your commenting please...

Baby Update...

I figured it was time to give a baby update on me (my past few posts have been about my beautiful new nieces). I am 27 weeks- only 13 more weeks to go. I am still feeling really good, but really pregnant too. I feel like my belly is huge but I know my biggest growing months are to come. Matt and I feel this little guy kicking all the time- it scares me of how active he will be when he actually comes out. We have not decided on a name yet, but we have a few favorites. We will be sure to let everyone know when the final decision is made. I have my Glucose test on Monday (this is where they test to see if you have Gestational diabetes). And another doctor appointment at the end of March. I can not believe I am more than two-thirds of a way done with this pregnancy. The Lord has blessed me with a healthy pregnancy and I praise him for that! I will be traveling home (to FL) again in April for a shower and I have two in St. Louis in the next couple months too. That will be fun! 

I hope you enjoy these couple of pictures...sorry you can not see my face, Matt is out of town and I took these of myself! Enjoy! I will post more soon!

More pictures from my FL visit...

I had a great time with my new nieces in FL. I spent most of my time with my sister, Miranda and her new baby Grace. Because my sister-in-law had just had her baby I only made a couple of stops by to see Caroline.

I was able to help my sister out a lot. I made her 14 freezer meals and helped her out around her house. I was exhausted (and sick) when i go home but it was all worth it. I fell in love with my niece and did not want to leave. I will be back in a month to see everyone again!

Look Grace is trying to give her Auntie Em a kiss! has been a rough day!
Mommy, Grace and me
Look at those sweet lips- I love them!
My sweet Grace. I miss her already!

I made another visit to see my second niece today- I just can not get enough of those girls! Mom and Caroline seemed to be doing well, yet both very tired! Here are some pictures of Caroline, Mom, Dad and Grandma Lamb (Stephanie's Mom).

Ok, my loyal blog readers out there you are not going to believe this! I was so fortunate to come home this week to spend time with my sister and my new niece that was born 2 weeks ago, and I was SO excited about that but guess what happened? About 3 hours after my plane landed my sister-in-law called my Mom to tell us her water had burst and she was on the way to the hospital to have her baby! I could not believe it! I come to FL to see one new niece and I get to see BOTH! I went to the hospital today to meet my second niece, Caroline Elizabeth Harrison. She weighted in at 6 lbs. and 5oz. and was 19 inches long. What an amazing God we serve to bless my family like this! Enjoy the pictures...there will be more to come this week for sure! :)
